Have bumper stickers gone out of style?
I'm not seeing as many as there were a few years ago (except for the ubiquitous "Support our Troops" ribbon bumper stickers).
A friend in Arkansas recently sent me some senior bumper sticker sayings that made me smile and hopefully will give you a laugh, too.
- I may drive slowly but I do drive safely.
- Birthdays are good for you. The more you have the longer you live.
- It isn't the age, it's the mileage.
- Support Bingo. Keep Grandma off the streets.
- Lack of pep is often mistaken for patience.
- Old age is when you feel your corns more than your oats.
- Memory is the thing I forget with.
And here's one not only for seniors, which we saw on a car in town a couple days ago --"Hang up and drive." Love it.
